Alcarràs, Lleida, Catalunya.

Alcarràs used to be a small rural town of less than 5,000 inhabitants, but the plan drafted during the construction boom contemplated almost 13.000 new homes, which would have meant an eightfold increase in population. Far from all were built, nevertheless Alcarràs has, during these years, doubled its population, and the empty homes have more than trippled.
